I'm new to the IBM BladeCenter H, and I'm trying to figure out the networking side of it.
I've installed a windows server OS on one of the blades, and am trying to fiddle with it's network setup (specifically in order to allow it to join an existing hyper-v failover cluster)
The BladeCenter has two ethernet modules and two fibre modules. I can access all of these via their web interfaces. However, I cannot figure out how they link up. Perhaps I'm going about it all wrong.
My assumption is that the Chassis can serve NIC ports up to the blade, and I figured that I could mix and match from the interface for the ethernet modules. But I either cannot, or cannot figure out how to.
So let me pose this as a question: if I needed to give another NIC to a blade, how would I do that?
Any IBM BladeCenter heroes out there?
